THE FARMER : MARCH 20, 1909.
"A Brother Told Me Many other people in our city testify to the value of Hood's Sarsaparilla as a cure for all blood diseases, and the nervous, exhausted conditions that are largely due to depleted condition of the vital fluid. "A good name at home ie a tower of strength abroad," and the -words of pratae for our business, our methods and our advertising that have gone out from our home city have contributed largely to the success Hood's Sarsaparilla is winning all over the world. Read the following letter from a lady in Maine: "Since I was cured of a dreadful abscess and its erfects several years ago, I have never hesitated to yc ommend Hood's Sarsaparilla for impure blood, and as a general spring medicine. The abscess was on my side and it caused me terri ble agony. At the same time sores broks out on my hands and arms, and the inflammation in my eyes waa such that sometimes I could hardly see. I did not have any appetite, could hardly sleep, and waa very nervous. "One of our physicians failing to give me relief, I just about gave up hope, thinking I should suffer BTBe sure to get Hood's Sarsaparilla. If urged to buy any prepara tion said to be "Jut as good," you may be sure it is inferior, costs less to make, and yields the dealer a largei profit. Begin taking Hood's Sarsaparilla today. Get it in the usual liquid form or is chocolated tablets known as Saraatabs. 100 Doses One Dollar. USED PRUSSIC ACID. Torrington. March 20. George Lan phier of Goshen committed suicide yesterday afternoon by taking prussic : acid. His wife found him in his room in terrible agony. He died in fifteen minutes. Continued ill health is be ; lieved to have been the cause of his 1 act. He was born in Goshen forty-four j years ago. At one time he taught school in Yalesville. He was gradu ; ated from Tale Law school in 1889 , and after being admitted to the bar he practised law in the West. For the last two years he had lived j in Goshen and devoted his time to i photography. Ho leaves a wife and one son. Robert. Ask far O'Hoarke'a union to TAfUFF SCHEDULE DISCOUNTED STEEL REPORT ISSUED. -New Tork. March 20. The most im j portant happening of the week was tne publication of the tariff schedule. I The financial district had been watch i ing for this with fear and trembling, ! although the nature of the instrument 1 was fairly well known. The changes were about as expected. The cut in steel prices was in some instances slightly larger than predicted in the gossip from Washington but the steel atecKs neia wen ana many oi tne rail roads made advances after the publi cation and at the end of the week the market on an average was about a point above closing figures of last week. On Friday the Steel makers announc ed aemi-ofncially that wages would be cut about twenty per cent by May 1. That there will be an effort to cut wages is certain but it is equally as certain that the cut will not be as drastic as stated. Those opposed to a reduction point out that the annual report of the steel corporation which wis issued on Thursday shows that the corporation earned in 1908 more than four per cent, upon its common stock as against 15 per cent, in 1907. With one exception 1908 was the worst in the history of the giant company. This loss in earnings was due to a lack of business. With better business the earnings under the same wage scale will undoubtedly be sufficient for all requirements of the corporation, so why should wages be reduced? The steel report was a wonderful one as usual, the figures would make many governments of the world green with envy. The gross earnings which are $482,307,840 were more than $270, 00.000 less than the previous year. A condensation of this wonderful report is as follows: net earnings of $81,847, 710, compared with $160,964,673 in 1907, a decrease of $9,116 963. The balance applicable for dividends on the com mon stock of new construction aggre gated $20,609,036, or 4.03 per cent on the common, comparing -with $79,345,886, or 1 per cent. 6 per cent, in 1907. The total balance of surplus of the corporation and its subsidiaries, $133, 415,214. com pared with $122,645,243 on Dec. 31, 1907, an increase of $10,769,971. The corpora tion had $49,548,053 cash on hand at the end of last year, compared with $53,-' 93.848 at the close of the preceding year, a decrease of $4,415,795. Bal ance of surplus for the year ended De cember 31. 1908, $10,342,987, compared with $15,17.836 on December 31, 1907. Appropriations for new construction in 1908, nothing, compared with $54,000,000 in the preceding year. Expenditures of all companies in 1908 for mainten ance, renewals, and extraordinary re placements, $38,058,559. compared with f55.S28.253 in 1907. Unexpended bal ance to credit of sinking, depreciation and extraordinary replacement and im provement fund $42,546,313, compared with $41,360,665 in 1907. Iron ore min ed 14,662. 715 tons, compared with 23, 970,558 tons in 1907. Expended for new construction $49,422,698 compared with J4,9l,?52 in 1907. Total spent for new construction since organization, $255, 407,913'. Average number of employes in service in 1908, 165,211 compared with 210,180 in 1907. Wages and salaries paid $120,510,829, compared with $160, 825.822 in 9107. Expended for con struction and extraordinary replace ments since organization, $348,032,939. J. R. BURTON'. 'A lady in South port told us the other day that she would not think of such a thing as not having a Cyrus Plaster in her house. She always buys five and saves the price of one, but when she gets a pain she has the plaster handy. Only 25 cents. From Lowell About It 99 as long as I lived. I was in this dreadful condition three years. When my brother came from Low ell, Mass., to visit me he told me how much was thought of Hood's Sarsaparilla in the city where it was made, and urged me to try it. So I did, and when 1 had taken two bottles, my nerves seemed very much quieted, I slept well, and my appetite was improved. The sores soon disappeared, and my eyes be came much better. "Therefore I have taken it every spring since, and I do not think too much can be said in its praise. My health is now very good, and I keep Hood's Sarsaparilla in the house all the time. If I get tired and nervous I And Hood's Sarsa parilla gives me strength so that I can rest well, and feel refreshed in the morning, ready for my day's work. To overcome the effects of the grip I have also found it the very best medicine." Mrs. James Irish, Stowe, Maine, Feb. 1, 1909. THE THEATRES SMITH'S. This evening, the closing perfor mance of the engagement of "The Millionaire and the Policeman's Wife" will be seen, and there is little ques tion that the theatre will be well filled, for this is one of the best melodramas to visit this city in a long time. It is staged most effectively, and the pre senting cast has been well selected. Monday evening will be the occasion of W. H. Crane's appearance in Geo. Ade's play, "Father and the Boys," which was one of the big hits of last season, and which goes right on being a hit. Mr. -Crane has found in it one of the best opportunities of his career. In it he appears as a man of business, the man who has grown old in the harness, who has fallen into a routine, who has dropped behind the "proces sion." He is abreast of the times, ev en a little bit ahead of the times, in his business, but in all else he clings to old habits, old ideas and old styles. "Graustark" or A Love Behind a Throne, which comes Tuesday for a re turn engagement, is a theatrical offer ing worthy the serious consideration of all classes of theatre patrons. It is the product of America's most popu lar and successful novelist, Geo. Barr McCutcheon, whose works for the past six years have outsold those of any other American author. It is also un iversally considered the best work he has ever written. The return engage ment here Tuesday will include a spe cial bargain matinee, and the east and stage production will be exactly the same as was seen on its former ap pearance. "The Servant in the House is like a fresh breeze that enters through an open window and expels some of the fetid atmosphere of the theatre." This sentence quoted from the Theatre Magazine explains in some measure the extraordinary popularity of Chas. Rann Kennedy's now famous drama that will be presented by the original Henry Miller Associate Players Wed nesday evening. This play is some thing new, something different. Un like most contemporary serious plays which take you through social or mire and leave you nauseated, it abounds does indeed touch upon certain abuses revealing and condemning them real istically, but it offers a beautiful and uplifting remedy, the remedy of mu tual understanding and brotherhood. This is done through medium of a character which many have declared is meant to be the reincarnation of Christ. In this respect Mr. Kennedy showed great daring, and that he ac complished it without offending the church indeed, doing it in such a way as to win the approval of clergymen of all denominations bespeaks his sin cerity of purpose and genious in dra matic construction. "Messenger Boy No. 42," a new sensa tional melodrama in which a group of magnificent Landseer dogs assume im portant parts, comes Thursday next, matinee and evening. Victor Moore comes Friday and Sat urday next, with Saturday matinee, in Geo. M. Cohan's greatest musical play, "The Talk of New York." direct from the Tremont Theatre, 'Boston. In this play Mr. Cohan will show a further de velopment of "Kid Burns which he originated in "Forty-Five Minutes From Broadway," and in which piece Mr. Moore created the part. POLTS An all-star bill headed by the great Broadway sensation, the original comic-opera entitled "The Naked Truth will be offered Poll's patrons next week. In promising the really best bill of the vaudeville season the management does not exaggerate. The entire bill comes here direct from New Haven where this week it has had a record-breaking run. The headline attraction is about the most preten tious thin? given to Poli's patrons this year. Phyllis Rankin and Harry Rav enport will appear in the stellar roles, and will be supported by a splendid cast of fifteen including a chorus of ten charming girls. The story of the production is brimful of great com edy. The piece is given with elabo rate special settings, and catchy mu sic. "The Naked Truth" should prove the greatest success of this season at Poli's when it opens the week's run Monday afternoon. 3i A splendid supporting bill will flank the brilliant headline attraction. A faeture of excellence will be Worm wood's Circus said to be the best ani mal act in the varieties. O'Brien & Havel will please with their original sketch entitled "Ticks and Clicks"; Brown & Navarro the peer of all col ored entertainers will be a fine feat ure; Winsome and pretty Ila Gran non vaudevilles' most popular singing commedienne; Cunning & Marrion, the chatty acrobats and comedians: San sonia & Delila sensational equilibrists; and new Electrograph views will round out a cracker-jack bill. Last performances of a good show this week. WANT ADS. CENT A WORD. JJASEBALL The Buffalo Enquirer claims it would 'be awful if the color line were drawn in baseball. They say the St. Louis Browns and Cardinals. Chicago White Stockings, Cincinnati Reds and Boston Red Sox would have to go out of business. The following major leaguers would have to retire: Na tional League Boston, Pitcher Red White; Chicago, Pitcher Mordecai Brown and Outfielder George Brown; Philadelphia, Pitcher Buster Brown; American Chicago. G. Harria White; Philadelphia, Gather Bert Blue; and Washington, Pitcher Dolly Gray. It sur would be awful. President Johnson of the American League is- quoted as having said that the action of Cy Seymour in burying his canines in Arlie Latham's jaw and for which he was disciplined by the New York management, would bar him from, playing in the American League. One of tWe next cases likely to be filed with the national commission is that of James Casey, D. D. S., now a resident of Montreal, against Frank Farrell, president of the Highlanders. Farrell doesn't owe Casey any money, but the manager of "the Canadian team says that Farrell is trying to rob his club of its nickname of long standing the Royals. "My Montreal bunch no longer seems to be entitled to the name of Royals," says Dr. Casey, "In view of the way Mr. Farrell is behav ing.. On the Hilltop team now he has King Brockett, Prince Hal Chase, Duke Farrell, an Earl Gardiner and a shortstop who is a Knight and a pitch er who is a Queen iQuinn). To fur ther clinch the Hllltoppers" claim to our trade mark of long standing, think of their Peerless scout, Arthur A. Ir win, and the Counts the team will make. The Majestic Manhattanites would be a good name for the Farrell troupe." Dasher Kelly, who has "been given a trial with about every club in the Connecticut League circuit for the last few seasons, has struck Manager Billy Hanna for a place with New Britain. Dasher is a. fielder of much ability but never could get by with the stick. He was with Bridgeport in 1907 in left field. Last season he played with the Tuxedo team of New Haven, appear ing at West End park a. number of times. The Waterbury club has put in a request to the Rochester management for all their surplus players. Pittsburg, March 20. Hans Wagner, the mighty bat swinger of the National League, yesterday signed a contract to play with the Pittsourg team for this year. He is to receive a salary of $10,000 for the season. Wagner then went forth later in the evening and- got tangled- up in a rather strenuous basket bail game and re ceived some injuries which are causing his friends much alarm. His- left hand was badly torn in the game and had to be stitched. THE INDUSTRIAL LEAGUE (By the Secretary. Next meeting Tuesday evening Mar. It is expected that the schedule for the year will then be adopted. It looks like the following for the starter May io: u. -M . c. -Co. vs. Yost; E. C. & B., No. 2, vs. Singers; E. C. & B. No. l vs. Ordnance; and Brass Co. vs. tne new team, wnicnever it mav be. Both Burnham teams will be pitted against each other on July 5th. The fourth this year falls on Sunday. May be they don't love to trim each other. 'Tut" Slattery has caught on with the Burnham No. 2 team. He was to be with the Yost team during the season, in fact they had him employed out there, but he went where his chan ces were better. It begins to look as if the Warner Brothers -will be the eighth representa tive in the league. The factory offi cials nave almost agreed to outfit a new team with all the paraphernalia necessary, wmie ai number of young men are in the employ of the company that know how baseball should be played. We can see where "Joker" Burns and Jake Delaney will get another chance to play with the Yost team again if some of the new material ob tained for this season carry out their threatened ideas. Manager Ellsworth's team will be called out for practice next week. George has already selected a sun kiss ed spot for his men to work out their kinks. It behooves the other man agers to get busy or else No. 1 Burn hams will have stolen a march on them, and will be too strong at the start. "Eddo" Keating will captain E. C. & B. No. 2. He has decided to go behind the bat and hold Lalley's shoots. Three games apiece this season will setttle all chances of rubber games. If a teshn wins two of the games it shows which is the better. Wonder how Fred Wetstine. mana ger of the Singers will get after the umpires this season. Fred was an In dustrial ump in 1908 and certainly re ceived his abuse, no matter how good he was. It's second nature to some to abuse. The league will have tickets printed for every game to have placed in your hat. It is probable that official col lectors will be appointed to get the coin from the spectators at each game. SPORTING GOSSIP Lewiston. Me., March 20. Kid Clark of Lawrence is doubtful to-day as to wb.ei.ber or not a house fell on him in the second round of his bout here with Mike Cunningham. The boys met last night for six rounds before the Cana dian A. C. The second roujid hardiy started when a hard right by Cunning ham landed on the jaw and it was the curtain for Clark.

DILLON & CO LAND MARK OF WATER FRONT TO BE RAZED The Tall Elevator, Scene of Bridgeport's Most Spectacular Fire 27 Years Ago, in the Hands of Wreckers to be Removed Piecemeal. The big grain elevator at the foot of Union street which has been a land mark on the water front of the city for nearly 40 years will soon be miss ing from the landscape in which It has had so prominent a position. The building has been sold to A. Stone, a building wrecker of New Haven. Yes terday the work of razing the struc ture was begun. Jn 1871 John Hurd, then engaged in the wholesale grain business erected the original structure. On the morning of Oct. 13, 1882, at 1:30 the structure was discovered to be on fire by Christopher Cassidy, a switchman of the N. Y.. N. H. & H. R. R. The building, which was over 100 feet high furnished the most spectac ular conflagration ever seen in the city. The building was filled with grain at the time and the loss to Mr. Hurd was something like $125,000 only partially in sured. Older members of the fire de partment will remember the desperate fight the firemen made to save the ad joining property and the brick block across the street. The structure was at that time cov ered with slate as is the present struc ture and the flames broke out on the super-structure which extended above the main structure something like 30 feet. The tall structure, wreathed in flames, swayed back and forth. The firemen risked their lives in protecting the property In the vicinity which caught fire repeatedly. The scene is WEST END BOYS' CLUB BASE BALL TEAM ARE TO PRACTICE TOMORROW Manager Beloin of the West End Boys' Club baseball team requests all players to report at the circus grounds to-morrow at 2:30 sharp, where the first practice game will be held when the Colt play the Regulars. The lineup of the Regulars will be as follows.-Burke, catcher; Howell, pitch er; McCarthy, first base; Keel, second base; Rist, third base; Shea, shortsop; H. Frank, left field; Cole, center field; Mallon, right field. The Colts will be a team picked from the new ones tryinz for the team and few of the old players of last year. Manager Beloin feels so proud of his team this season that he has secured "Brute" Regenery, the crack second baseman of the Yost team, and Tom Malone. the one time crack twirler of the Springfield team to coach. The Colts will line up as follows: Vancock and Gallaghers, catchers; Eck and Whalen, pitchers; Morgan, first base; Bentze. second base; Lannon, third base; Whalen. shortstop; Gal lagher and Ramn. left field; Faulkner and Moss, center field; T.

JOHN HENRY SIMONS AT Y. M. C. A. SUNDAY. Edward C. Mercer, who is the nephew of Chester A.

"Having heard Mr. Simons speak on several occasions, I have each time received from his burn ing message an inspiration and bless ing.

The fire was plainly visible for 20 miles around and on Long Island where it was believed that the entire city was being consumed. After burning fiercely for more than two hours the pillar of fire fell with a crash across the tracks of the rail road. Traffic was delayed the entire day and no trains passed the spot for several hours. Several of Bridgeport's firemen were injured in fighting the flames. The present structure was built the next year to replace the one burned. It is 50x45 on the ground and 135 feet in height. It contains 36 bins with a to tal capacity of 150,000 bushels of grain. The elevator was purchased by W. M. Terry when he succeeded to the business of Mr. Hurd. Five years ago the structure and the ground upon which it stands was purchased by the railroad company. The officials of the rlalroad in this city can give no in formation concerning the use to which the land will be put after the elevator is removed. It has been rumored that j the lower portion will be transform ed into a hotel or pleasure resort of some kind with a roof garden at the top 100 feet above the surface. This portion of the building is constructed of 2x6 plank laid, flat, one upon the other and lapping at the corners. The first section of 100 feet contains over a million feet of timber. The work of tearing down the building will be difficult. SEVEN FIRES IN . ROCHESTER LAST NIGHT (Special from United Press.) Rochester, X. Y.. March 20. Seven more fires were added last night and this morning to the fire bug's opera tions in this city. An outbuilding on the old state industrial school grounds an ice-house, and another structure near the school house were burned, the Coy Warehouse and a coal shed also being fired. The biggest fire was in the seven story annex of the east side savings bank building, $30,000 damage being- done here. The loss is all cov ered by insurance. The Donahue Im porting Company and the Dollar Hat store are chief losers. lire neuten ant Martin McMahon fell through i shaft onto a pile of boxes and was, it is feared, fatally injured.
